Outdoor Education - Conflicts of interest: land use

Conflicts

Conflicts arise between recreation activities and other land uses. In some
cases, a particular land use degrades the quality of the resources on which
the recreation activity is based. For example, timber production and
wilderness recreation are not compatible in the same area. On the other
hand, pressures for recreation and preservation of existing conditions can
constrain commercial or industrial developments. Conflicts can also arise
between incompatible recreation activities, for example fishing and water
skiing. In case of fishing, commercial and recreational fishermen may be
competing for the same resource.

Use your mouse to expore conflicts of interest that affect wilderness
areas.
